"500 Can't use an undefined value as a SCALAR reference" sometimes happen if the file has illegal characters: in that case it will be rejected forever; however not all illegal characters are really prevented, so things can break later, e.g. in the derive process.

The other times, the upload of the file fails but the item is created, then the script retries to upload to the existing item and it works; maybe it's some problem in the metadata (which is used only the first time, for item creation, given that metadata can't be changed).
Perhaps it's because of some empty cells I have in some of the metadata columns?

The SCALAR error is now happening to me even with files that should not be problematic at all. Perhaps due to a perl upgrade? I'm using 5.16.3 and this mentions some changes in 5.14+ http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=999824

Edit: looks like using the last version, found on https://github.com/kngenie/ias3upload/blob/master/ias3upload.pl , fixed it

Now it's happening again and it's because previous archive.php steps are failing, in this case due to no space left on device... https://archive.org/details/wikimediacommons-200712

Has anyone had issues with this error?
